Priscilla Incisa della Rocchetta said: "It is my duty and my pleasure to thank my predecessor Matthieu Perrin for the great job he did and all the energy he put into it. Seventeen years ago, my family was invited to join PFV. It was - and still is - a great honour to have been welcomed by this great association and to take part in this amazing adventure. Today, PFV represents the distinctive voice and deep artisan roots of family businesses that are committed to absolute quality, and who have a long history of social responsibility based on mutual support and collaboration. Our companies have a total of over 2400 years of experience; for us, more than ever, family means sustainability and, therefore, the safeguarding of values which enable us to produce great wines and preserve our common heritage. PFV are the symbolic "dozen" representing the voices of millions of family businesses, who share their values and their struggles all over the world."
Traditionally the Presidency passes from one of the twelve historic European wine families that form the Primum Familiae Vini association to another at the annual PFV conference in July. The last two years had been led by two members of the Famille Perrin, having to transfer within the family due to the issues of COVID-19 and it's impact.
